Who will cheerfully pick up your kids from school with zero notice when you have a meeting run late? Who drives you to the airport for a 6 am check-in?
Who comes over to your house for dinner and doesn't leave until she has your kitchen spotless?
Who loves and teaches your children, and who loves and teaches you?
I have that friend. And she is my sister. As well as my new co-blogger here.
In her previous product review, Tami announced that she was looking for a jog stroller because she had found out on New Year's Eve that she was pregnant. This was great news, because her husband's paralysis back in 2007 had put their family-building on hold. Gino had just recovered enough to resume his job as a police officer, right at the first of the year -- perfect timing.
Well, Tami and Gino found out last week that the baby had stopped growing. She was able to have the miscarriage without medical intervention over the holiday weekend, and yesterday's ultrasound shows that she is doing as well, physically, as can be expected.
My sister is incredibly resilient. She is also doing amazingly well emotionally.
But I ask you, many of you who haven't yet had a chance to absorb her wonderfulness, I ask you to either leave your words of support for Tami and Gino below, or over on her solo blog. She has not yet written a post about this latest turn of events (not sure she will), but you can leave a comment for her and Gino here.
She'll still be reviewing. Stay tuned.
And thanks, from me, for your support of my sister, whom I love deeply.
See the cool stuff our classmates are showing and telling over at Mel's Show & Tell.
